Wrightington Hospital's status as a Centre of Excellence in the treatment of musculo-skeletal disease has its origins in the seminal work of Professor Sir John Charnley, who pioneered hip replacement surgery involving the techniques of low-friction arthroplasty and also innovative advances to counter post-operative infection.
Wrightington's reputation for excellence attracts highly talented Consultants who specialise in joint surgery, and in the medical disciplines of rheumatology and rehabilitation. This multi-disciplinary approach produces important synergies.
